St. Paul Youth (aka SPY and Jr. SPY) is a means for both junior high and high school students to grow as individuals while exploring ideas, values, and faith within the context of a supportive community of peers and adults. It is a series of programs and activities to give young people a chance to participate in Church life, develop their own faith and spirituality, and discover new friendships. The 2012/2013 curriculum will begin in the fall.
Highlights from the 2011/2012 program include:
Game nights and leadership retreats held at Sanctuary, Marshfield; painting rooms at Bethany House of Prayer; a letter writing campaign in support of families at risk of being separated through deportation; movie-making nights and sing-a-long outings. And last but not least, the St. Paul Youth took part in a greater Boston area-wide effort to package 50,000 meals for local food banks.
The St. Paul community was asked by then youth leader, Katie Osweiler to give 5--$5,000 by 5-5, and it responded with the 4th largest packaging event in New England history!
